Happy Friday! I am happy to link up today with Andrea, etc. right here for…
How was your week? I will be running out the door after school today much like this:
Things are going well and it is so fun to be with the kids again, but I am end of year teacher tired.
How was your week? Did you have any favorites?
Here are a few of mine:
I got a sweet text which led to a phone call to help a student who graduated last year.
She was so sweet to reach out to me and she told me about a paper she had to write. I asked if she could call to brainstorm and we had a great conversation. THIS is what it is all about. I love keeping in touch with former students.
And, this sweet current student took the time to message me:
I feel weird sharing these things, but it is so important to give people words of affirmation in all aspects of your life. I am encouraging my college kids to reach out to high school teachers and thank them, too.
I am on 2.5 weeks of my periwinkle/blue dipped manicure. Gosh, this is vain, but I have enjoyed having nice nails again – that last for more than two days at a time!
Everything is so green and beautiful. I am trying to get outside after school as much as possible and we have Wednesdays to work from home.
I really, really like these Target shorts and I saw them in store in olive green so I scooped those up, too. They run slightly big, but I like that. I love the fabric and the pockets. Check them out below and here on the website.
I am not sure if I will keep this or not, but I wanted to share it. The color is stunning and it is a ribbed one piece from Aerie. It fits great and is great quality, but the color is out there. It also comes in a dark green. I am kinda tired with my standard black, you know? You should check out their cute suits at very reasonable prices. I am so impressed with all of the quality of my Aerie goods.
I went to the mall this week for an errand. You cannot enter Anthropologie from inside the mall. You cannot enter Sephora from outside the mall. I wanted to go in Anthropologie but I was inside the mall already!
I went to my favorite department store – Von Maur. I tried these on and they were too narrow at the top of the foot. I am liking the square toe trend. They are Steve Madden.
I tried on these Chinese Laundry sandals. They are backless which I like.
And, some of you know how much I love Reef brand flip flops. These are Reef below. They are so comfy!
The department store was all decked out for the Kentucky Derby and their piano player was playing “My Old Kentucky Home”. I think it is really hard to get tickets this year with limited capacity due to Covid.
I had a late lunch/happy hour with my friend Elizabeth on Wednesday. We went to BJs and had sparkling sangria.
I had a wonderful Asian salad with chicken that I can’t wait to get again.
One day I curled up outside with a blanket. I lit my new beer can candle and it smells so good!
I love the flowering trees we see this time of year.
And, I have a shoe problem. I love these but haven’t tried the on yet. They are Kork-Ease and a local boutique carries them.
I would love to hear a favorite of yours!
Thanks for reading and have a wonderful weekend,
